Co-Change supports the implementation of institutional change among research and innovation actors in the areas of research ethics, open science, stakeholder engagement, science education, gender equality and sustainability. The partners form a network of research organisations, research funding and government agencies, firms, ethics councils, and civil society organisations. Together, they develop tools and practices for responsible research and innovation, for example, to reflect on internal norms, values and practices, and to build capacity for governance and management, ethical and social impact monitoring, and assessment.

2022. 10. 18. Conference on Open Science Science Europe invites institutional leaders, researchers at all stages of their careers, and experts from the field to join its Conference on Open Science to discuss two key questions: Is Open Science ready to become the norm in research? How do we ensure this becomes an equitable transition? To find answers to these questions, the conference will provide a comprehensive overview of practical and policy initiatives, research assessment reforms, and financial measures that support the transition to Open Science. We will also look forward at new and emerging trends.

- The Final Conference of Co-Change We will celebrate our final conference in Budapest, next February. Details about the program and registration will follow later.
- STS Conference Graz 2023 The 21th Annual STS Conference Graz 2023 „Critical Issues in Science, Technology and Society Studies“ samples a number of thematic fields as a guideline to address contemporary challenges of the interplay between science, technology and society. The call for session proposals is open until the 3rd of November.
The Co-Change Labs are spaces for experimentation, where we work to better address societal challenges. The lab teams produce customised tools to make research and innovation more responsible. Our cooperation partners operate as a network of research performing, and research funding organisations as well as various societal stakeholders. Some labs are more technology-specific, e.g., oriented towards artificial intelligence and autonomous systems technologies. Other labs are more oriented at specific practices, e.g., working on open science, gender equality, and sustainability.More about change labs
